Growing Calendar for Garlic - Red Duke
Delivery: Mid September to Late December
Garlic Red Duke is a beautiful hardneck with red cloves. It originates from Moravia, Czech Republic and has good strength of flavour and although there are others with similar colouring, Red Duke has far superior white skin cover and is a harder, more durable garlic in the UK climate. It has a particularly strong garlic flavour and scent.
Red Duke shows an intermediate resistance to rust in trials and has vigorous green leaves and growth habit, which until the last month of growth shows no sign of virus or botrytis.
Can be planted 15-18cm apart from October through to January and typically produces bulbs in excess of 60mm at harvest.
Bulbs look good with no visible damage
